A single spring application of 2% carbaryl applied as a bark band persisted for at least 15 wk and killed most elm leaf beetle, Xanthogaleruca luteola (Miiller), larvae, which migrated down the trunk after feeding in the canopy. Foliage damage. but not insect density. was significantly lower on insecticide-banded elms in northern California. Foliage damage did not exceed an apparently tolerable 35% on banded Siberian elms (Ulmus pumtla L.), but treated and untreated English elm (Ulmus procera Salisbury)were severely defoliated (50-100%).
